Clinical Details

Official title: An Extension to Study Protocol CVAL489K2302 to Evaluate the Long Term Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Valsartan in Children 6 to 17 Years of Age With Hypertension, Versus Enalapril Treatment for 14 Weeks, or Combined With Enalapril Versus Enalapril for 66 Weeks in Chronic Kidney Disease Patients.

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Number of Patients With Adverse Events

Secondary outcome:

Change in Mean Sitting Diastolic Blood Pressure (msDBP) From Baseline to Week 26

Percentage of Non-CKD Patients Achieving Systolic and Diastolic BP Control at Week 26

Change From Baseline in Post-dosing 24-hour Mean Systolic and Diastolic Ambulatory Blood Pressure at Week 20

Change in Mean Sitting Systolic Blood Pressure (msSBP) From Baseline to Week 26


Minimum age: 6 Years. Maximum age: 17 Years. Gender(s): Both.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Successful completion of 12 weeks of double-blind treatment in core protocol


- Patients participating in study CVAL489K2302 who may have discontinued prematurely

due to uncontrolled hypertension defined as MSSBP > 20%, but < 25% above the 95th percentile for age, gender, and height after visit 5, qualifies a patient for entry into this extension study. Exclusion Criteria:

- Renal artery stenosis.

- Current diagnosis of heart failure (NYHA Class II-IV).

- Second or third degree heart block without a pacemaker.

- Concurrent potentially life threatening arrhythmia or symptomatic arrhythmia.

- Clinically significant valvular heart disease.

- Patient that demonstrates clinically significant ECG abnormalities other than those

associated with left ventricular hypertrophy and AV block controlled with a pacemaker.

- Previous solid organ transplantation except renal, liver or heart transplantation.

Renal, liver or heart transplant must have occurred at least 6 months prior to enrollment. Patient must be on stable doses of immunosuppressive therapy for 3 months and deemed clinically stable by the investigator.
